14 Unit 5 “Talking about Activities”

15 Lesson 5:1 Talking about Everyday Activities

16 ASL Tenses

17 Tense Quoted from the Master ASL! textbook, p. 231
“All languages have ways of talking about past, present or future periods of time. Tense means distinguishing periods of time. In ASL, tense is formed by the addition of certain signs called tense markers to the beginning of a sentence that is then understood to be in the past or future tense. If there are no tense markers, then the sentence is in the present tense.” Zinza, J. (2006) Master ASL! Level One. Sign Media. Inc. Burtonsville, MD.

18 I leave at 10:00 Present Tense: I leave at 10:00
no tense marker Past Tense: I left at 10:00 adding the past tense marker – PAST/AGO Future Tense: I will leave at 10:00 adding the future tense marker – WILL Zinza, J. (2006) Master ASL! Level One. Sign Media. Inc. Burtonsville, MD.

19 Lesson 5:1 Talking about Everyday Activities
Does ASL have conjugated (“To be”) verbs? If a time sign is not specified, then it is assumed that the events described are in the present tense. (p. 235) The day before today; yesterday Last Monday, the past Monday At the present time, now, today The day after “today,” tomorrow Next Friday, this Friday

31 Lesson 5:2 Agreement Verbs
GIVE-TO SHOW-TO THROW-TO TAKE-FROM ASK-TO TELL-TO Agreement Verbs - a verb that indicates the subject (the person doing the action) and the object (the person receiving the action) in its movement. Usually the verb moves from the subject towards the object. (p. 241) Watch the video of how the signers modify the movement of the verbs to describe these actions from their points of view.
